The six statues of Rameses II are the most complicated part of the reconstruction. The Pylon itself is all straight edges and made up of simple cubes that are easy to form into the right shapes. But the form of Rameses II has many curved shapes made up of thousands of polygons.
There are also two small figures of his wife Nefertari that form part of the throne for the two seated statues.
The easiest method is to break the statues up into components then to fit them together to create the finished object.
The movie below demonstrates this in a simplified way – many of the components in the movie were themselves made up of separate components and the whole statue took over a week to complete
In the next part we will see how the obelisks were made
and experiment with lighting
